In October of last year we set up Dr. Scraver’s new office in San Antonio Texas. Dr. Scraver took a very unique approach to the layout and design of his offices. With a focus on Pediatric Dentistry, Smile Structure is designed to make children comfortable in an environment that usually makes them a little fearful. The concept must be working because Dr Scraver has recently started construction on his second facility in south San Antonio. Dr Scraver will be incorporating many of the features from his current office at the new facility.
From the time you enter the front door, every detail says “Play land”. To the right of the check in desk the room is filled with a playscape and slide for the little ones. There are also two game consoles with age appropriate video games available for keeping children distracted. These custom cabinets were designed and built by Med-Tech Construction.
What really sets this lobby apart is the 25 seat movie theater complete with 5.1 surround sound and 1080p full HD video projector. Movie goers are treated to a wide range of movies choices thanks to an Apple TV system. To keep things secure, Datasavior installed all of the electronic components in the data closet at the rear of the building. All system controls are handled through an IR repeater located just above the movie screen.
Each of the operatories and treatment rooms have hand painted murals with meticulous details, each depicting scenes featuring the practice’s mascot, Andy, on his adventures. From a technology standpoint, Datasavior outfitted the treatment rooms with Dell Optiplex computers and patient view monitors. The patient view monitors are hooked to the same Apple TV system found in the movie theater. The Apple TVs allow patients to chose what movie they want to
watch. The system is flexible enough to allow viewers to watch the same show from different starting points. Additionally, since they are part of the overall network, you are able to stream video directly from the internet. Opening the possibility of YouTube, Netflix and many other viewing options. Of course, the patient view monitors are great tools for Dr. Scraver. They can be used to show intraoral pictures, x-rays and patient records. Most importantly, they can be used for patient education.
Last week our team headed to San Antonio to rough-in the new location. The new space will include many of the same features as the current office with a few changes. There will be a new movie theater as well as the game cabinets. We will be installing computers and patient view monitors in 8 treatment rooms. New to this office will be the addition of an Ortho bay with 4 chairs. Two consult rooms and an expanded front desk will round out the project. Connected to the space are the new corporate offices for Dr. Scraver’s business.
